The course will give an overview of the structure, themes and guidance contained in each of the 114 chapters of the Noble Qur’an. In particular, we will be looking at

  • how Surah names are related to each Surah and the historical contexts of their revelation (Asbab al-Nuzul);
  • the inter-textual relationship and coherence (Nazm) between verses of each Surah and the relationship with preceding / following Surahs;
  • cross-referencing to other parts of the Qur’an in order to demonstrate how the “Qur’an explains the Qur’an”;
  • explanation of key passages in each chapter; practical guidance and lessons that can be derived from each Surah.
  • We will also be discussing linguistic and stylistic devices (Balaghah) used in the Qur’an, and some of the problems with translation and having alternative plausible interpretations.

All Course materials provided, including a special HB Arabic-English Qur'an translation and CD explanation of the whole Qur'an by Amina Elahi (worth £30).
